In other words, the Bears will have something to play for next weekend so it looks like the Vikings will be playing against Chicago's starters.
With Seattle winning, there's no backing in now (I don't see Philly losing to Washington). I don't know what's worse, winning to get in or losing in the first round of the playoffs. I take solace in the Vikings will find a way to do the worse of the two.
Which means they will blow a 21 point lead with 2:00 left jn the NFCC Game.

This is the Vikings, don't underestimate their ability to do both as poorly as possible.

Starting to see Dirk Koetter linked to us for an OC. I really like the sounds of that. He’s been a solid OC for quite a while now. Kind of similar to Zim. Everywhere he’s been, he’s had a good offense. Whereas Zimmer has had a good defense pretty much everywhere he has been

He's been offered the Falcons OC job since being mentioned as a candidate for the Vikings. I mentioned it in the "Off season changes/hirings & firings" thread and there's a link there. I don't know if he'll take the job but apparently, it's been offered...

Stefanksi is a finalist for the HC job in Cleveland. On his way back to Cleveland for a 2nd interview. It's him or Freddie Kitchens. I would think Kitchens has the advantage, but the fact that Stefanksi is getting a 2nd interview is big.

Koetter and Mularkey were tied to the Vikings OC opening. And both got hired by Falcons.
Zim don't screw this up. :whistle:

McCarthy is apparently only interested in the Jets job.

Looks like Kitchens is officially the new HC of the Browns as of a few minutes ago:

Also, on a side note, Vic Fangio is the new HC of Denver:

I know some Bears fans that are going to hate that!
